Boo! Halloween 2011

We had a wonderful Halloween this year!  Addie was a ton of fun!  This was the first year that she really “got it.”  Our little Minnie Mouse had the TIME of her life on Halloween night!  She would skip to the door, say "Trick or Treat!!" Then, "thank you!" and even "happy Halloween!"  She even said to a few people, "I am wearing my Minnie Mouse dress!"  We definitely will never forget our last Halloween as a family of 3!


Before we started Trick-or-treating, she was so excited because she was sitting watching out the window at the kids coming to our door.  She kept saying, “They’re coming Mommy!  The tick or treaters are coming!!”DSC06315DSC06313

These two melt my heart….


Nana and Leelee came trick or treating with us!


Addie and her sweet friend Lizzy…


We also enjoyed a hosting a Halloween Playdate for our MOPS (moms of preschoolers) group the week before Halloween.  It was so fun to see all of the kids in their costumes.  Addie and Rylee were the “Minnie Twins,” and they were so excited to be in the same costume.  It was a great time! 


Addie loves Baby Eli (Baby “Ery”) and had fun admiring him….he was the cutest Mickey we’ve ever seen!


We had crafts and cookie decorating on our back patio, and Halloween treats in the kitchen.


I also had to post the pictures of my little “Kitty” in the dress Aunt Penney gave her last year. (Aunt Penney is Carol’s super sweet Aunt who lives in South Carolina) We love her so much!  We have been waiting for Halloween to roll around so Addie could wear this dress!


Opening Halloween cards from Nana and Lee….

I just love how her “exuberant” personality shows in these pictures…


Showing off her new Halloween Jammies from Cece and Grandpa…


Oh, and I had to throw this one in with the Halloween post as a way to say, “I pick my battles.”  I actually let her carry this fake pumpkin from our porch to school with her.  (She did not take it into school, but it rode in her lap with her all the way there!)IMG_2441

Can’t wait to celebrate Halloween again next year with not one fun little girl, but TWO!  Hmmmm….what will they dress up as?  Gotta start thinking now!  After all, I did get Addie’s Minnie Dress at a consignment sale this summer for $4!  Gotta keep my eyes open for next year’s costumes!!
